Thanks for looking at this, after some discussion I've decided to remove the "carryover WML" feature which I had added, for the time being, so this bug is now moot / fixed / whatever.

I looked at this and the problem lies with the line "allow_new_game = false" under [next_scenario_settings]. If flag would be set to "true", the problem wouldn't appear. What's more, it looks like this https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/commit/82e71a9fba8f44989afd868276ade5506254b004 commit introduced this bug. Maybe the problem is that some of the logic is only applied to a host and not to other players?

For now, I'm assigning this to involution (iceiceice) as he should be the one, who understands the logic behind the commit mentioned above, better than anyone else.

Attached find a test scenario I used originally to debug the carryover WML feature. (packaged as an add-on here)

It seems that when using this scenario in a networked context, transitions cause the observers to be trapped in mp_wait dialog, and non-host clients to be ejected to the lobby.
